mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." this from the most ruthless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. and when the candidates suggest that their plans are going to be sufficient to address the crisis the deficit facing debt crisis that we're facing, in an environment which we can't afford to tank the economy, they are implying something that's fundamentally false, given what they've told us. president obama is telling us how he's goingcio get some extra revenue by tax incrsoses. but he's not going to get enough that way. and he hasn't specified the spending cuts. and governor romney's numbers don't work out either. in you've got both implying that my plan is sufficient, when in fact neither i

in virginia beach where joe biden was supposed to be today. they postponed that event. they've altered their schedules. they're going to be appearing elsewhere. you mention the fact that president obama, he's going forward with his trip to new hampshire today. he's also got a big trip set for monday appearing with bill clinton in youngstown, ohio. orlando, florida. and then lastly, northern virginia right here in river city. we'll see how that goes on monday what the weather looks like. we're expected to get the brunt of it as you just heard between monday and tuesday. meanwhile the president, as you mentioned, has been giving interviews, talking about that fiscal cliff. the quote of the day yesterday you had it on the super, he promises to wash john boehner's car and walk mitch mcconnell's dog. turns out mitch mcconnell doesn't have a dog, in order to get something done to avoid that fiscal cliff everyone is predicting economic catastrophe. meanwhile, an nbc affiliate out of denver talked about some of the themes that he's working on and hitting mitt romney with. >> i fought for middl
democratic. the scranton may be best known. joe biden is from there. hillary clinton's father was born there. everyone starts to campaign in scranton in one way or another. in sitcoms, scranton is a town. they have an extra gene for politics. host: we have a phone line set aside for those of you who live in pennsylvania. we want to hear from you as we focus our series here on the key battleground states. terry madonna, since 1988, pennsylvania has gone democratic. last time they vote republican was for george herbert walker bush. why? guest: 2 when the suburban voters, as i pointed out a moment ago, they come out of philadelphia with a huge edge and that is the largest municipality in the state with a heavy concentration of democrats. if you win philadelphia in the out of thet's say southeast by 650,000 votes, it's pretty difficult to overcome that edge in other parts of the stage even if republicans win the infamous "t" we referred to. the other thing to remember about pennsylvania is that it is dominated by one television market. there are six tv markets in the state, but philadelphia cove
is in washington. joe biden will be there. live coverage starting at 3:30 p.m. eastern. the president's statement expected at 12:45 eastern. right now, a discussion on the cost of campaign 2012 from this morning's washington journal. that is the last comprehensive report we would get from the campaign, party committees, other groups. when they spend money, especially these outside organizations, they have to report every 24 hours but they have spent. the big picture is pretty well defined. host: the romney and obama campaigns are expected to raise $1 billion each. what does this say about the election? guest: is very hours but they have competitive and close. people are engaged and interested. the president's campaign in 2008 also got to about $1 billion, but altogether with the parties donations. for both of them to be there is extraordinary. host: walk us through what you're looking at in terms of money raised. there are other groups attracting wealthy. >> the campaigns are fairly different. the obama campaign has been very successful in fund- raising, raised $630 million so far. the romney cam
be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and following on -- host: of one week to go and looking at the momentum in colorado. the numbers are on your screen. with every special one from colorado residents. kathy from pueblo, colorado, an in
chief economist for vice president joe biden, also an msnbc contributor. jared, as we look over these estimates and they're really rough now in the very beginning. >> very rough. >> sandy could cost when it's all said and done, the total $20 billion or more. exceeding the damage certainly from irene last year which was about 12 to $16 billion. meantime moody's an lytics estimate economic losses will total $10 billion a day, lost wages, production, sales for businesses. do you think that estimate is on target? >> yeah, i think that estimate is on target but i believe moody's said they're not going to alter their estimate for gdp in the fourth quarter because some of this will be made up and also some of this stuff that gets destroyed you have to put people to work to rebuild it. that actually adds to gross domestic product. it subtracts from the net but adds to the growth. >> one thing i'm being told in my ear, we have an updated death toll i want to pass along to everyone. we now have 27 -- 29, excuse me, 29 confirmed deaths. again, we started this hour it was 18. so the numbers
president joe biden attending rallies in florida and bill clinton is in iowa for the obama campaign, of course. let's bring in the political panel. david goodfriend and rachel smelkin. thank you both for your time. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> i want to get to this poll showing the president still holding on to his lead in ohio, florida and virginia. we know that when you look at national polls, depending on which one, a different picture but it is about the battlegrounds and likely voters here. what do we make of the new polls? >> hurricane sandy introduced a massive unknown in to the final days of the race and that's the first thing. we are not yet seeing that reflikted in the polling. having said that, it looks for the president's team like they're still holding on in ohio. the margins closed there as in other battleground states but that's an all-important state for both campaigns to win this election, mitt romney is almost going to have to win ohio if not he's going to have to run the table everywhere else. this is a good piece of news for the president out of ohio today. vir
